We got pretty lucky with the cinnamon swirls. As we came in they had none, but we were told it would only take about 10 minutes, so we waited and it was worth it. We got fresh, warm cinnamon siwrls and for me they were...More

I come here all the time and I love it! I always get the same thing, chicken sandwich and a cup of tea, comes to just over 6 quid and is always delicious! They make their own bread fresh everyday and it's just the best...More
